Death Row Records is an American hip hop record label. It was founded in 1991 by Dr. Dre and Suge Knight. Rappers/singers including Snoop Doggy Dogg, Nate Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Kurupt, The Lady of Rage, RBX and Michel'le agreed to join the label, following with Tupac Shakur, who became the label's biggest star. The label declined when Shakur was killed in September 1996, Knight was charged with parole violation the following year, and when Dr. Dre, Snoop Doggy Dogg, and many others left the label. The company filed for bankruptcy in 2006, and was sold to the MNRK Music Group (formally eOne Music). Snoop Dogg later purchased the rights to the trademark and music of Death Row Records in 2022, intending to revive the record label, which is currently active since, as an NFT label.
